On Wednesday afternoon, PWHL Boston signed free agent PWHL Minnesota defenseman Emma Greco to a one-year contract. She was part of the inaugural Walter Cup roster and will now help Boston reach the finals again.

“Emma is a solid, reliable defender with a proven track record in the league. She was a part of Minnesota’s Walter Cup-winning team, so she knows what it takes to win in the playoffs,” said PWHL Boston General Manager Danielle Marmer. “Her tough defensive style and straightforward puck-moving style are an identity we’re excited to add to our D-Corps.”

In her first season in the Minnesota PWHL, Greco managed to maintain an 8+ rating during the regular season without scoring a single goal. She is looking to earn her first PWHL point with Boston in 2024-25. Her offensive skills aren’t what make her a good player. She is a good defender who will pair well on the second line with Sydney Bard or Jessica Digirolamo.

Before the PWHL, Greco played five seasons in the PHF, NWHL, and CWHL. Here are her stats from those five seasons:

2017-18 (PHF, Connecticut Whale): He recorded 2 assists in 6 games.

2018-19 (CWHL, Toronto Furies): He recorded 3 assists in 23 games.

She was a member of PWHPA in 2019-20.

2020-21 (NWHL, Toronto Six “A”): Recorded 1 assist in 6 games.

2022-23 (PHF, Toronto Six): He scored 5 points (1-4) in 24 games.

Greco doesn’t get on the scoresheet as often as other defenders, but her defensive skills make up for it. A strong and flexible defender who will support the Green Monster next season.

Here’s what Boston’s newest resident has to say about her contract:

“I am excited and grateful to be joining PWHL Boston,” says Greco. “I know Boston is a sports city with incredible fans and I can’t wait to see them at our inaugural home game.”

Greco was the first player outside the Boston organization to sign with the team this season. She will leave a Walter Cup-winning team to help Boston win their first Walter Cup.
